Three Steals - Act Fast
by Peter J Troilo
Each August, we wait in anticipation for “closeout” offers from our suppliers. The offers come out in an effort to prepare warehouses for fall releases and holiday inventory. It’s an inventory “dump”, if you will. One of our suppliers got an early start. Christmas in July? I love it! The smart move is to act quickly.
In good taste,
2012 Soter “North Valley” Chardonnay
Brilliant green-gold color in the glass leads to aromas of fresh tropical fruits - mango, dried apricot, pastry spice and hints of crème brûlée. Sleek on entry, the palate reveals Asian pear and stone fruits, with a striking balance between creaminess and acidity.
A great core of minerality lingers throughout the finish. This is breathtaking Oregon chardonnay.
Regular Price - $39.00 the bottle
Sale Price - $30.00 the bottle
2011 Racemi “Sinafora” Zinfandel
91 Points Stephen Tanzer
Bright medium ruby. Deep perfume of blackberry, red cherry, licorice and sweet pipe tobacco. Dense, pure and concentrated, with red fruit and spice flavors nicely framed by ripe, harmonious acidity. Finishes with noteworthy precision and grip. This is one of Italy’s best zins almost every vintage.
Regular Price - $20.00 the bottle
Sale Price - $16.00 the bottle
2009 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé
94 Points Wine Spectator (Highly Recommended)
Tangy raspberry and black cherry fruit is underscored by smoke and mineral accents in this finely knit, racy rosé Champagne. Mouthwatering, with hints of apple blossom, lemon zest and creamed almond on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 16,666 cases made.
